Stop SOPA | PIPA! Please…I implore you! Continue Reading Only This Once…If Never Again.
What I am about to say, I may never have the freedom to say again…More about why in just a second.
Immediately the next day, Wednesday, I read the following public statement regarding the official WordPress project’s position on SOPA and PIPA. Breaking a silence of a no-politics rule.
Only after taking the time to read this will, you be privy to what is unfolding before you – right now – concerning the democratization of publishing and the independent web.
Many of our rights and freedoms are balancing in the wings.
Between Raj Goel’s interview and reading, the following public statement made on behalf of the official WordPress project, which speaks volumes, you will become empowered to make an informed decision.
According to WordPress, “We are not a small group. More than 60 million people use WordPress — it’s said to power about 15% of the web. We can make an impact, and you can be an agent of change.”
“Today, I’m breaking our no-politics rule, because there’s something going on in U.S. politics right now that we need to make sure you know about and understand, because it affects us all.”
Following is the WordPress News statement; Wednesday, January 10, 2012 regarding SOPA/PIPA…I implore you to read WordPress’s short post and watch the video. Only then will you understand the magnitude of what is happening that will affect us all.
It begs the question I have posted and asked before…”Whose Internet is it?”
